Hello my fellow musicians. This week we are doing something a bit different. I wanted to shine the spotlight on one of my students who is doing great things. Check out Emma Jane!
Emma has been taking lessons with me for two years and she is so talented. I have seen her grown into an established singer right before my eyes! Her pitch, vibrato, and vocal riffing are all top notch.
At just 17 years old, we can expect some great things to come from this talented young woman.

This week we continue with our piano lessons. By this point, you should be feeling a bit more relaxed while playing. Your fingers should feel comfortable when you are pivoting and crossing to do your scales and keeping your fingers curled while playing should feel more normal now.
Visually, the notes on the keyboard should be more recognizable to you now as well. You can point out any note on the piano in any octave in a matter of a few seconds. Since you know your musical alphabet, the correct fingering with your C and G Major scale, we are going to learn how to play the next scale, D Major.
D Major has two sharps (two black keys). The two sharps are F sharp (F#) and C sharp (C#). You are going to keep the same fingering pattern you learned for C and G Major scales.
Enjoy this weeks lesson and as always, leave a question or comment below. I am happy to help.
